From New York City to London, these eloquent dancers were captured striking poses in the nude at hundreds of locations in the US, Canada and Europe. The stunning photographs of the nude group of dancers were snapped by Manhattan portrait photographer, Jordan Matter, for his new book Dancers After Dark.
One of the breathtaking images was captured in Washington Square Park in front of the iconic arch, with 25 dancers who Matter instructed to to ‘drop your clothes and run into position’, the New York Post reported.
The dancers held their poses in front of the arch for 43 seconds until Matter yelled: ‘Break!’
It was snapped shortly before midnight, and right before police arrived to close the park. The image was the final photo needed to complete his new book.
Matter, who is also the author of the New York Times bestseller titled Dancers Among Us, shot the dancers without clothes at several locations across the US, Canada and Europe, the Post reported.
Many of the US photos were captured at or near New York City landmarks.
Houston Ballet dancer Harper Watters posed for Matter as a human statue at the Rockefeller Center.
Throughout his many photo shoots for Dancers After Dark, police interrupted him more than 40 times.
In the book, Matter says that he has a ‘streak of zero arrests’, despite police presence at several photo shoots.
